Rush and Gia's story continues in the gripping conclusion to the New York Times bestseller, Rebel Heir...
How to screw up a great summer in the Hamptons:
Sleep with your boss. Check.
Blow all your money on a rental you can't afford. Check.
How to walk away from a man you fall in love with at the end of a summer:
...I'll let you know when I figure it out.
So, I was a bit let down with this book.
Frankly, the whole story could have been one book, because most of this book was all about Rush and his weird back and forth with being able to be a father. I would have ditched his ass way before Gia did but like I said in the last review; Gia was a follower to Rush’s wants.
And she did it again in this book. She comes off as helpless and it was not a good look on her in the last book so I was even more upset about this particular character trait in this one. She just hung around, waiting, hoping he would change his mind. And he strung her along, going back and forth with his affection. Wanting to take care of her but not wanting to go in whole hog. That was a read flag for me. IMO Rush is damn lucky she stuck around because anyone else would have bounced on his ass long ago. He is no great catch in my eyes. And because I KNEW they were gonna get back together the whole middle angst-y part was just fluff. Unnecessary fluff.
And the whole ending was ridiculous. After all his hooting and hollering, he just expected her to fully trust him again and seemed shocked that his actions could have caused it to become so bad. Gimme a break. Okay I’m just getting more upset. I did enjoy it enough to finish it and I’m glad Rush got the closure he needed from his father but other than that, eh, it was okay.
This book satisfies a spot in our #finishingtheseries challenge. I have now passed my original goal of C list series finisher and am on my way towards B list finsher! Go me!
